When having your vehicle maintained or repaired it’s usually less expensive if you can use the services of an independently-run company. If it’s a family owned business it’s often a friendlier, more pleasing experience, too.

Established by husband and wife team, David and Hazel Hanley, more than 20 years ago, Mount Pleasant MOT Centre is just such a company.

The team is committed to looking after customers, and as part of this commitment, they can take customers to work or home, and collect and deliver vehicles within the local area. They are able to provide an MOT reminder service, too.

David and Hazel’s family play an integral part in the running of the firm. Son, Andy, is one of three fully-qualified vehicle technicians that include David himself and Luke Headech. They work closely to ensure that all customers gain the benefit of their considerable knowledge and technical experience.

With the highest professional standards being attained, they provide servicing, repairs and as the company name suggests, MOT tests, for all makes of car and light commercial vehicle.

Clutch, brake, timing belt and head gasket replacement is undertaken and tyres can be supplied and fitted with tracking being available. MOT repairs and pre-test preparation is another area of expertise along with welding.

Another member of the team is Andy’s wife, Gill, David and Hazel’s daughter-in-law, who works with Hazel on all the important paperwork that comes from operating a business.

With a large customer database and more arriving through personal recommendation everyone is kept busy. However, there’s always time and space to accommodate your vehicle within their well-equipped workshop which features diagnostic technology and all the facilities required to carry out all work to an exacting standard.

A member of Motor Codes, the Motor Industry’s Code of Practice, Mount Pleasant MOT Centre is highly recommended by customers, many having voted for the company on the website survey which placed it as one of the top five in the South East. Indeed, Mount Pleasant MOT Centre is recognised as one of the top 100 in the whole country.

Always known for providing value for money, the team is fully aware that money is tight and aims to keep customers’ bills as low as possible whilst providing quality levels of workmanship and customer care.

Hazel comments: “We have gained many long-standing customers over the past 21 years, indeed some we’ve had since day one, and now we’re providing for the motoring needs of their children.”

Mount Pleasant MOT Centre is a Unipart Car Care Centre, so all work is covered by a nationwide guarantee.
